My friend and I have a difference of opinion.  When I put my glasses and cups in the cupboard, I turn them upside down.  He puts his glasses and cups into the cupboard right side up.

“Why do you do that?” he asked me.

My answer, “So spiders don’t crawl into them.”  I said this sheepishly because I know that most people don’t understand my love/hate relationship with spiders.  I wouldn’t want a spider to get into my glass and not be able to get out again.

Of course, I asked him why he keeps his cups and glasses right side up.  “To keep the cup rim off the shelf,” he answered confidently.  “The shelf might get dusty.”

We each have our own ways to protect our dishes!

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
